Sadly, as a bookworm, we are all prone to bookish disappointments.

Which is really… sad?? This probably happens waaayyyy too often for me – I seem to always set high expectations for every book, scream and squeal when my hold has arrived at the library, and being furious the next day. That’s basically my reading life summed up to a sentence.

REVIEW: Three Dark Crowns // murderous sibling rivalry + a new ship (??) // announcement

Hello loves! *waves into the void known as the blogosphere* How are you all? June has been a pretty good reading month for me – with school starting to dwindle out and summer approaching, I have more time to actually be a bookworm for once 😂

I don’t know why, but book reviews are honestly one of my favourite types of posts to do. I’m always in dire need to add more books to my never ending TBR list, and connecting with fellow book lovers is always an amazing thing. Today, I’ll be talking about my thoughts on Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. I have a feeling that this post is going to be really interesting…

I know that I missed my Saturday post – I’ll be talking about that near the end of the post.

REVIEW: Exit, Pursued by a Bear // #TimesUp movement // important discussions about rape, sexual abuse

It’s not everyday I cry, people.

I’m one of those people, who are extremely emotional, but almost never cry?? I mean, I can bawl out and scream on the inside, but on the outside I’m equivalent to a piece of paper: blank.

Ever since the #MeToo campaign started, more and more people are starting to speak up and share their stories about sexual harrasment, abuse, and misconduct. It’s a really big topic going on; especially in Hollywood right now, and really, it’s amazing to see how people are standing up against it.

To be honest, this has got to be on my top reads for 2018 (again 😅) This has been sitting in my drafts for about a month?? #shameless I’m really excited to kasdjf;asdklfjas about Exit, Pursued by a Bear, and rant about how amazing E. K. Johnston is, because we totally need this positive vibe right now.

Let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

Review: The 57 Bus // the importance of diversity // we need more YA non-fiction NOW

Sure enough, it’s only the beginning of the year, but this has GOT to be one of the top 2018 YA books.

Or in the whole history of YA literature!! Seriously.

Of course you have every right to doubt me, but I am sure I will be able to push you over and get you to read this book, so therefore, DO NOT DOUBT ME THIS TIME. Other times… okay. But definitely not today.

This has got to be the weirdest intro ever, and how am I supposed to start a book review post? And how should I integrate a discussion about human rights, acceptance, and gender identity with the review? I might as well just  go to sleep now.

Anyways, before I regret doing this book review, and keep on procrastination for the 4th month, let’s dive right in.. *hup*

pst… happy February everybody XD
